Mary Chapin Carpenter will perform at 7:30 p.m. on June 17 at Byham Theatre in Pittsburgh. She is supporting her latest release, "Sometimes Just The Sky," which celebrates 30 years since her career began.

The 13-track album was recorded entirely live at Peter Gabriel's Real World Studios outside Bath, England. Joined by longtime collaborator Duke Levine on guitar, as well as musicians she's never before worked with Carpenter challenged herself to re-imagine and rearrange some of her favorite songs from throughout her catalog.

The album features one song from each of her previous twelve albums along with the newly penned "Sometimes Just The Sky." Over the course of her career, Carpenter has sold over 14 million records. With hits like "Passionate Kisses" and "He Thinks He'll Keep Her," she has won five Grammy awards, two CMA awards, two Academy of Country Music and is one of only 15 female members of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Tickets start at $39.50

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
